Eamonn Holmes says Phil and Holly ‘should never have been allowed’ to present 'drunk' in explosive interview
| Last updated
Eamonn Holmes' roasting of Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby doesn't appear to be over just yet, as the former This Morning presenter has slammed his former colleagues once more.
The 63-year-old has vowed to 'tell the story', and has started doing so in an explosive interview on GB News with Dan Wootton.
In the second part of an interview released last night (30 May), Holmes slammed Schofield and Willoughby for appearing to present This Morning 'drunk' after the 2016 NTAs.
The memorable TV moment Holmes referenced saw the former pals turn up to present the show wearing the same clothes from the glitzy award show the night before.
Willoughby even pointed out a stain on her dress after dropping mustard down it while playing Pie Face at Ant McPartlin’s house.
"We’re still in the same clothes,” Willoughby told cameras, adding: “I haven’t been home yet. I came straight here.”
Holmes claimed the moment was ‘either an act, in which case it’s false, or they are drunk, in which case it should not be allowed’.
Speaking on Dan Wootton Tonight, he said: "They have been allowed to turn up the next day advocating the use of drink – or something else, I don’t know – and sit on a couch [like] ‘I’m so drunk, I haven’t been to bed, I’m drunk’ whatever, whatever.
“And yet ITV […] the legacy of Ant McPartlin – lovely fella – who was in a driving accident where people were injured when he was under the influence of drink. And yet they can promote that?”
He continued: “Ruth and I were prevented from advertising chocolate in an advert because it is a poisonous product. It would be poisonous, to advertise chocolate is poisonous and you wouldn’t be allowed to do it.
“Phillip can sell cars, she can sell anything else – she’s worried about not being able to sell anything now because of her image may well be damaged because she’s associated with Phillip. But these are rules for one and rules for another.
“Does that make me bitter? Maybe it does.”
The latest criticism adds to a long list of what Holmes has said about his former colleagues in recent days.
He has also labelled Schofield as 'delusional' following an Instagram statement, while he has also called for Willoughby to follow her former pal and step down from This Morning.
